    we run very little mesh plays, THE staple play in the Air Raid playbook.

    My gripe as well. Chris Simms, the NBC analyst for the game, was astounded by how deep the Irish safeties were and made it clear that running plays and throws to the slot receivers or TEs should be open. So why didn't USC exploit those weaknesses? TE's had 5 catches, right? Why not 10? Did Pittman ever get to line up in the slot? Just seems like USC brain trust is getting out-thought in every game.

    I sense GH adjusts his playcalling to what his boss wants the playcalling to be.

    This version of AIR RAID, really doesn't look like an air raid offense.

    We should be running 2 receivers deep every play and rotating in every receiver all game long no team has enough dbs to cover all of the guys for 60. Leach's whole philosophy is to fatigue the dbs and wait for them to make a mistake Chow was about scheme and adjustments. GH is somwehere in between committing to the air raid and scheme. You can run in both Chow used the FB qnd RB to create mismatches on LBs to fatigue them for running plays. Stepp would run for 150 with a fatigued 2nd and 3rd level

    Do they time them when recruiting them? I'd say 4.65 to 4.72 range for this group.

    when you practice less than 100% you will play at that level. SC WRs are not known for speed and that could be another reason. IMHO they just don’t play at the championship level bc of the coaching.

    If PC was coaching these guys we would not be having this discussion. Dwayne Jarrett and Mike Williams were not very fast but always found a way to get open and played 100% every down.

    chow used TE often. I remember having 7-8 TE on the roster. Now it’s rarely used

    Except Krommenhoek was the second leading receiver Saturday...
    I think part of this is, sadly, as usual in the last ten years at SC - the guy is learning on the job.
    So you are seeing interesting adjustments like that being made, but he's having trouble doing them at "game speed."

    Slovis's learning curve is very interesting to me. Because the kid goes through his progressions really well for someone who's four or five starts out of high school. As I said in my previous post, he seems to have the brains and decision-making ability (not to mention the physical characteristics) to be a really good Pro-Style QB. If we have the luck of having the same OC and starting QB for a couple years running, this could be a very productive learning curve for both of them, similar to the Chow / Young, Chow / McMahon salad days at BYU. It's amazing to look back at that tape and see a new world being born right in front of you.

    Definitely a different offense than what Oki’s running. Not sure what this is.

    our current WR's dont fit this offense. they are pro-style jump ball guys. the WR's we have that fit are Amon-ra, & velus, for sure, the air raid WR's are typically elusive and fast, good route runners. we have a lot of tall and slow. The other thing is our route combinations are elementary. time for Graham to break out the more complicated shit. like motioning guys. Hell you want to get Pittman 1v1 and no safety over the top, motion him down into the slot, that is basic. Run more out of the pistol, harder for the defense to tell by alignment of the back what is coming. Everyone knows that if the back is lined up almost parallel to QB, its going zone outside. if the back is further apart and yard back from QB, running up the middle.
